16. Bled Strategic Forum
31 avg–2 sep 2021
Over the years of its existence, the Bled Strategic Forum has evolved into a leading international conference in Central and South-Eastern Europe, offering a platform to express and contrast opinions on modern society and its future. The purpose of the Forum is to gather participants from various fields with diverse knowledge and encourage them to exchange views and seek innovative solutions to present and future challenges. In addition, the Forum is also a unique opportunity for meetings and networking with regional and global stakeholders.
Hundreds of influential political representatives, business leaders, think tanks and NGOs, representatives of international organizations, business representatives, thinkers and academics gather each year at Bled Strategic Forum to actively shape the future we want for us and the generations to come.
Between 1 and 2 September, a varied program awaits us. During the forum, one of the major promotional events will be held at the Rikli Balance Hotel, which will host an exhibition of contemporary Slovenian design titled The Future of Living, which was created as a result of cooperation between Centre for Creativity, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Culture and Slovenian embassies abroad. The panel ‘Green Recovery with Social Sustainability at its Core – Putting People First’, which will be attended by Anja Zorko, head of CzK, will discuss the opportunities that cooperation between sectors and industries can have on the implementation of the Green Deal.
The 10th edition of the Forum of young leaders (Young BSF) will take place in parallel with the 16th edition of the Bled Strategic Forum and will be held between 31 August – 1 September 2021. It has become a unique meeting place for a diverse array of young leaders, entrepreneurs, influencers, thinkers and social activists, offering them a platform to share their visions, exchange ideas and connect.
